  • Gender, Environment, Conflict - Special Issue Newsletter, Civilian Crisis Prevention - Environment and Natural Resources 2008

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, May 1, 2007
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    The linkages between gender, environment and conflict have so far not been studied in detail. Environmental changes and conflicts impact men and women differently because of their gender roles and socio-cultural situation. More often than not, environmental degradation and the consequences of climate change or natural disasters reinforce existing gender inequalities. Gender therefore needs to be systematically mainstreamed to achieve effective conflict prevention. This newsletter contains articles that explore the links between gender, environment and conflict or peace.

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 1, 1998
    Objective: 
    Approach:

Case studies from Ghana, Uganda, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Jamaica are used in this report to illustrate some of the gender dimensions relating to trade. Present evidence suggests that, under certain conditions, export expansion can benefit certain groups of younger, more educated women. However in general, the rights of women workers to fair terms and conditions of employment need protection.

    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, April 1, 2014
